@Regrann from @amhistorymuseum - Did you know we have a brewing historian? We do! 🍻 Our #BeerHistory expert Theresa McCulla is on a research trip in California right now. These are her snapshots, starting with this brewing equipment she spotted at one of the breweries where she's doing research and oral history interviews. Theresa will be conducting oral histories at three breweries and one brew pub as well as at a university-based brewing studies program. What's she hoping to learn? Answers to questions like these: What was the culture of early home brewing like? What factors helped some home brewers become the first professional craft brewers? How did brewers access new kinds of ingredients, like West Coast hops? What's unique about California's brewing history? And how have beer consumers' tastes changed over time? 🍺 As part of the Smithsonian's Brewing History Initiative, Theresa will be crisscrossing the country to assemble a comprehensive history of American beer. You can follow her travels and learn more about #BrewingHistory over on Twitter—she's "theresamccu" and is well worth a follow! 🍻 Photos: 2) Fragrant, sticky whole cone hops! 3) Oral history equipment 4) 1896 San Francisco city directory listing dozens of brewers 5) History books spotted at a brewery 6) Inside a brewery 7) Tasting the wort. #SmithsonianFood #FoodHistory #CaliforniaHistory #ITweetMuseums #MuseumCurator #MuseumJobs - #regrann
